A group of teachers in Indiana is one of seven teams nationwide chosen to conduct experiments on a reduced-gravity training airplane, known as the Vomit Comet, through NASA's Teaching From Space program. The program allows students to develop experiments to be tested in the reduced-gravity environment and then has teachers perform the experiments on the plane. One group of students, who already tested their experiment in a normal gravity environment, will see the effects of weightlessness on a tornado vortex formation they created in school.
